Interdisciplinary Thinking Conference

21st Century Visualization

Amanda Linn What do you bring to this conversation?

What is interdisciplinary thinking?
Why does it matter?
Is it collaboration or an individual process?
Is it about discoveries, creative inspiration, entrepreneurship?
What does it mean to you?

Come to the conference and explore these and many other questions with professionals who are engaging in interdisciplinary thinking.  Learn how to leave the "minimum requirements" behind and soar into new, interesting and rewarding vistas.

Public school teachers attending this conference will receive a certificate from Longwood's Graduate and Professional Studies confirming 5 hours of advanced professional study.  Please check with your school system to verify acceptability.

This conference is a new program sponsored by the Liberal Studies majors' "Big Thinkers" Committee.  Most Liberal Studies majors at Longwood are preparing to teach in the elementary or middle schools or in special education.
